    Walking Route


    The Langdale Pikes, with steep flanks and distinct summit profiles, are easily recognised and 'the round' is a classic. Taking the conventional ascent then crossing to Easedale on a sneaky path leads to the Grasmere side of the range. The path down from Easedale Tarn is a purpose built pony track used by Victorian tourists. Head for the Travellers Rest, an original sixteenth century coaching inn, full of old world charm, oak beams and inglenooks (and the full range of Jennings Ales!).

    Before setting off please make sure you plot the suggested route on OS maps and pack a compass. They are essential for a safe, enjoyable day in the hills!
